knows and loves its roots.

Love takes many paths and detours. It is therefore not surprising that the family background of the Hotel Gerbe has taken thousands of twists and turns over the last 300 years until the Knobel family ended up where it is today with its hotel of hospitality. The roots began to take root around 1710 in the buildings of the former Kreuzlingen monastery, when Joseph Jacob came to the Gerbe.

To this day, it is his descendants who live, work and offer their hospitality on the estate. The names may have changed in the meantime, but the traditional hospitality is still the same. Today, the family brings a wide variety of talents to the business, which means that the future of the Gerbe is already taking shape. Because the Knobel family has always been on a journey together through its own history, which is closely linked to the many guests who come and go here every day. At the Hotel Gerbe, hospitality has been a top priority for generations, from the past to the present and into the future.
